I found this card idea on Pinterest (from Painted Orange blog) using the basket framelit from the Basket Builder dies and I just loved it. Of course, I had to buy the Basket Builder framelits to make this card! Ha ha.
Anyway, I just love how it came out. It looks like the basket of succulents are sitting on a shelf with a lace doily or tablecloth underneath. So pretty!

I found the idea for this card from Heidi Baks. I enjoyed using this bright and playful llama. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of him in the future. :)
I cased this right from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. I decorated the designer paper in a different style from the original and I'm pleased with the outcome. To make this card, use the Cupcakes and Carousel papers and stamp on them with the stamps from the dragonfly set. The card base is Bermuda Bay and the extra cut-out is from some copper paper that I had lying around.
Dragonfly set, have you tried it you? You will love the variety of things that you can do with it. :)

I used the Falling in Love designer paper and really love the elegant look of this card.
Have you tried this stamp set yet?
Last week I took out the framelits and made this interesting card. I started with watercolor paper and colored streaks with the watercolor pencils. Then I added some water with a paint brush and made the background look like watercolor. Then I added the dragonfly cut-out.
This card isn't your style? Try taking out the watercolor pencils and giving it a try anyway. It was a lot of fun to make. What color scheme can you come up with? What other framelits or shapes would look good on this kind of background?
I added some designer paper to coordinate and used the Petal Burst embossing folder for the background. I found this idea from stampnlinger.com.
Do you like the shimmery paper?
They are both the same card, only using two different sides of the designer paper, giving them each a very different look.
I got the idea from the a card that I've seen on Pinterest by Lisa Pretto. I changed the colors to reflect more of a spring-time look. It's like a tree that is still bare from winter but hoping for the green leaves of spring to come quickly!
The image is from the Avant Garden set that was featured in the Sale-a-bration catalog. I also like the cut out leaves as accent pieces. I found the idea on the Chase and Main page.
I had so much to "say" in the form of magazine photos and words that I ended up making two Vision Boards to include everything! One is for mostly for my home and family life and the other reflects my creative and crafty side. :)
To plan my Vision Board Night, I bought a foam poster board for each person and some glue sticks. Then I cleared off several tables for us to work on. Everyone brought magazines to share that we used for cutting photos and words from. I also had some scrapbook papers for the background.
Would you like to make a Vision Board? They are really very easy. And you could even invite some friends over to work on it with you. It doesn't have to be January for you to set goals. :)
Let me know if you make one and how it comes out.
